FinalePM MSVCR100.dll error

Postby jcasqueiro » Mon Apr 24, 2017 3:54 pm

I started getting an error code whenever I try to launch PrintMusic:
"The code execution cannot proceed because MSVCR100.dll was not found. Reinstalling the program may fiz this problem."
I have uninstalled PM and reinstalled it from the site but the error remains.
Any ideas?

The first step is to search your system for that file. If it's there, then it's probably a matter of file permissions or of moving it to somewhere where the program will find it.

This is a Windows error. There are many reasons the error can exist including that it may be present but not be the version that PrintMusic requires. Anyway, it's a common issue. Start here:

This site assumes you know what you are doing.

Print Music is a 32bit application so you will need the 32bit version of this .dll if there are now two. Otherwise, the article is self-explanitory.

If this does not resolve the issue, go to the support site and ask MM using the Submit a request link at the top of the page. MM will know if it goes anywhere besides the System 32 folder.

I used to run into this many years ago when I did tech support for a Windows software company. There was a .dll that had different functionality depending on the OS — it had less in NT and XP than 95/98 (which should give a clue how long ago that was). Anyway, the "fat" version worked in all OS. Microsoft would not let us bundle it with our installers, however.
